Ceviche is one of my all time favorite dishes! If I see a ceviche on the menu when eating out I always order it. Ceviche is a South American dish usually made with white fish and seasoned with green lemon or lime, cilantro, red onion and salt. But there are a lot of different versions using salmon, shrimps, scallops and different types of fruits. If you’ve been following me for a while you know fish and seafood are my first choices when cooking. And ceviche is one of my favorite dishes to make and to eat. Therefore I’ve been experimenting a lot, making all different kind of ceviches last couple of years. And now it was time to make a vegan version. This ceviche is made using oyster mushrooms, I chose it due to the similar texture to fish. I also added some cherry tomatoes and cucumber to add some crunch and freshness to the ceviche and seasoned it with green chili, lime, fresh ginger, cilantro and salt. This ceviche is perfect to serve as an appetizer in small glasses or on spoons, as a starter in a glass or bowl or as a main course. It is both vegan, gluten, grain, oil free and low carb.
A few tips:
- Cut the oyster mushrooms into bites sized pieces. You neither want too big pieces taking over the whole dish nor too small pieces barely feeling the oyster mushrooms.
- The amount of chili, cilantro and lime can be adapted according to taste.
- This dish can be prepared in advance. I would actually recommend you to make it in advance and then let the oyster mushrooms, tomato and cucumber soak up the spices and lime juice.
- If preparing it in advance store it in the fridge and then take it out of the fridge 10 minutes before serving.
- This recipe makes two main dishes, 4 appetizers or 10-12 appetizers.
